I guess you can say I am on a wreath kick since the heart shaped rose wreath that I shared last week. I have been loving all the burlap wreaths I have been seeing in blogland and have been longing to make one for awhile. I used a wire wreath frame for this and used a combination of the techniques from Sarah’s tutorial on Becoming Martha and Laura’s tutorial on Top This Top That.
I thought felted flowers would be the perfect embellishment for this. The texture goes so perfectly with the burlap and I also don’t have to worry about them getting ruined by the moisture outside. I worked the flowers up with Cascade 220 wool yarn. The large rose is from this pattern that a shared a couple weeks ago. But the buds and leaf patterns are below.
Rosebud and Leaf Pattern
Here’s what you need:
- worsted weight yarn (wool yarn such as Cascade 220 if you want to felt them)
- US H-8 / 5 mm crochet hook
- yarn needle and scissors for finishing

Fasten off leaving a tail of about 6 inches. Now, roll the strip so that it resembles a bud and use a tapestry needle to weave your 6-in. tail through the bottom of your flower, making sure to go through all layers of the flower.
To make the small bud, follow through Row 2 of the Large Bud pattern.
Follow same instructions for fastening off.

Hi Sidney 🙂 Here are the instructions after Row 3: Fasten off leaving a tail of about 6 inches. Now, roll the strip so that it resembles a bud and use a tapestry needle to weave your 6-in. tail through the bottom of your flower, making sure to go through all layers of the flower.

I can’t get to the pattern for the rose. It said to click ‘here’ but it didn’t work. I want to do the whole pattern with the buds and rose. It is just beautiful. I love the BL wreath. Thought this would be cute on hats too.
Hi Betty 🙂 So glad you like it! You can find the rose pattern here: http://www.petalstopicots.com/2013/01/rose-pattern/
Kara, I love these rose and rose bud pattern! 🙂 I noticed the link for the heart shaped wreath says Page Not Found. Just thought I’d give you the head’s up.
Thanks so much for letting me know, Sharleen! I fixed the link 🙂
I have been looking for a rose bud pattern like this. The roses I have been doing kind-of look like other kind of flowers, even though they are pretty just not as pretty as these are.
Thank you, Terry 🙂

Beautiful contrast between the fine flowers and rough fabric, lovely idea! Honestly, I would never get that fabric so perfectly equal folded ;-). Thanks for sharing!
